Are you booking a food truck to cater your next party or business lunch but having a difficult time? Here are a few things you should know to help guarantee your event is a success!
As a food truck owner, the biggest tip to save the most money is to book with the food truck directly. SEO marketing has made it possible for 3rd party planners (Roaming Hunger) to book events on behalf of the food trucks. They tend to overcharge the customer and underpay the food trucks. I recently booked a food truck through a 3rd party site to see what they would charge. The breakdown was $1400 to the food truck and $735 to the 3rd party booking agent. Directly booking with the food truck in this situation would have been $1500 thus saving the customer $635!
Another issue with 3rd party booking agents is they do not know your city like the food trucks do. Do you really want a planner at their desk in Los Angeles organizing your event that is taking place in Las Vegas? The food trucks you select will be there the day of your event and I can promise you their number one priority is to relieve the event organizer of any stress as it pertains to having food at the event. Food trucks are so great because they are self contained and their operators will be onsite to ensue a wonderful guest experience.
Finally, if you are not sure what food truck to pick, I encourage you to pick up the phone or send an email to any truck you can find. Food trucks are like family and we all communicate and share jobs; furthermore, no one knows food trucks better than,well, food trucks! We know all the different cuisines and will do our best to help send you in the right direction.
